'The last one is a sleep button. Good night, children. More confirmation that children’s book creators are unsung geniuses.' New York Times
'Bouncy and mischievous' Guardian, Children's Books of the Year
Here’s a button. I wonder what happens when you press it? From a singing button to a tickle button, from a rude sound button to a mysterious white button, there’s only one way to find out what they do! A remarkable adventure powered purely by imagination, where the sounds, songs and play are completely up to you and whoever you're sharing this wonderful book with. Reminiscent of picture book legend Hervé Tullet's Press Here, this chunky board book will take you on a magical journey of colour, imagination, and play with a wind-down bedtime ending (unless you’re asked to read it again).

"Bouncy and mischievous, Sally Nicholls's The Button Book is illustrated with giddy, infectious energy by Bethan Woollvin"
"Wonderfully illustrated... The last one is a sleep button. Good night, children. More confirmation that children’s book creators are unsung geniuses."
"This beautifully simple concept takes readers on a magical interactive journey, powered only by imagination and play. Fresh and charming, with lots of scope for children–and adults–to join in."
"Nicholls' simple, silly narrative and Woollvin's colorfully childlike illustrations result in a fun picture book that incorporates shapes and colors and that can be used at home and in libraries and classrooms."
"Each button is made distinct by a specific setting and palette, with Woollvin—an exceptional colorist—utilizing one hue at a time to highlight her black-and-gray illustrations, which makes for dynamic visuals as the pages go by."
